UmrahThere is no issue with repeating Umrah as it is Sunnah. In Arabic, the word ‘Umrah is derived from I’timaar which means a visit. However, ‘Umrah in Islamic terminology, means paying a visit to Ka’ bah, performing Tawaaf. Umrah can be performed during anytime in the year, there is no fixed time for ‘Umrah. As the Umrah consist of four basic steps, Sa’ee is the important and third step during the Umrah. After getting in Ahram and performing the Tawa’af, the next step is the Sa’ee. Umrah packages offered by a number of travel agents all around the world.

The Pillars of `Umrah are four:

  1. a)     Ihraam: which is assumed at the Meeqaat.
  2. b)    Tawaaf: around the House.
  3. c)     Sa’y: walking between As-Safaa and Al-Marwah, which consists of seven circuits.
  4. d)    Tahal-lul: which means coming out of the state of Ihraam; becoming lawful what was previously prohibited during Ihraam.

During ‘Umrah, pilgrims do not go to Minaa, ‘Arafaat and Muzdalifah or throw pebbles on the Jamrahs (stone pillars representing devils) or offer animal sacrifice. These rites are only performed during Hajj.

When the one who wants to perform ‘Umrah arrives at the Meeqaat, it is recommended for him (both man and woman) to take a bath if convenient, including menstruating women and those experiencing postnatal bleeding. The man perfumes his head and beard but not his Ihraam garments. There is no harm in what remains of it after Ihraam. There is nothing wrong if it is not possible to take a bath at Meeqaat.

Men are to alteration into their clothing of Ihraam while the women only need to make their purpose at that time in the clothing they are already wearing. There is no specific clothing labelled for women, except that they are banned from wearing the veil and gloves. Instead, they may cover their hands with the lower part of their khimaar.

As for men, they must assume their Ihraam at the Meeqaat by wearing two pieces of fabric called the Izaar and the Ridaa’. The Ridaa’ covers the top half of the body, while the Izaar covers the lower half. No other clothing is allowed to be worn in addition to these – no underwear, no pants, no shirt, no turban, no hat, etc. are to be worn.
